    Deka etx16L

    the size is 16 and the L is for reverse terminal orientation (both are important)

    Odyssey AGM batteries are not Gel batteries. They are Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM).

    AGM is an excellent battery type for PWC use.

    The 'normal' PWC battery from Odyssey would be the PC625. I am not familiar with which terminal orientation your particular Sea-Doo requires, so check the terminal polarity.




    The Deka ETX16L is also a good quality AGM battery, if I am not mistaken.

    The Odyssey may be good but the Deka is the best battery. (both are AGM)

    +1 on the deka, I carry ODY and Deka..I'm just not keen on the ODY terminals..which is why I started carry the deka..that terminal setup )is bulletproof). in both cases you need a smart battery charger specified for an agm battery. On doo's you must disconnect the battery at end of season, or kiss it goodbye. run an AGM dead flat and it's a goner.

    How many years are you guys getting out of the AGM batts? I think I have been getting about 5 years out the Yuasa's. They used to be cheap, like half the odyssey, and readily available, but the last one I bought was closer in cost and I had to hunt & drive for it.


    Edit: I went from 7 to 5, I think I missed a battery in my math, should have replaced one last season, and my 900 always gets the newer battery.

    After killing a battery a year I have 7 years on my original Deka. It's on its 4th ski. ('96 & 98 XP, GPR13 & GPR15x)
    -it holds up to the jarring & vibration that kills the lead ones.

    Steach, that's a big improvement. Lack of use kills mine.
    I changed my mind. I think I am averaging 5 years with the Yuasa. Topped off with distilled water spring and fall and charged a couple times over the winter. I got a battery tender a couple years back, it seems to help keep them healthier.
